New 52 - Action Comics #1

In the most ridiculous news story related comic books this week, North Carolina-based retailer The Comic Conspiracy bans the newly relaunched Action Comics and then lifts the ban two days later.

Why did he ban the comic? Well, in case you don’t read comics, apparently there has been a socialist left-wing liberal agenda that has populated comic books over the past 75 years. And it all came to a head on Wednesday when the Grant Morrison-scripted Action Comics showed Superman utter the horribly offensive “GD.” The shock of reading Superman being hit by an explosion and grunting crossed the line for the comic retailer as he took to his Facebook page and let those commies know what’s what. Here’s a series of those Facebook posts here below.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Long Island Iced C” Henchman21 and “Silent Rage” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 7, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

There’s a lot of comics coming out this week. Some more powerful than others, but some smaller titles that are destined to be better than the bigger ones. Who knows what’s going on, but I think the comic book industry has a strong cruiserweight division, so hopefully some of those books will show up in the heavyweight title picture, because they ultimately will deserve a long term title run. Oh wait, we’re talking about comics… sorry! I get confused!

Anyway, this week we see Kirby: Genesis, one of my favorite new books of the year, the returns of Atomic Robo and Casanova, and the first full week of new DC books including Action Comics, Men of War, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Stormwatch, lions, and tigers, and bears, OH MY! This week promises to be a good one, so grab my hand on join me as we travel down the four color brick road to the land of comics!

On Monday, DC Comics announced the all-new origin and costume for The Man of Steel. Get ready folks, because we’re in store for an angry comments section. Why? Just wait and see.

Action Comics #1 (cover shown below) will be written by my favorite writer Grant Morrison with art duties from Rags Morales, artist of the amazingly popular Identity Crisis. And in the hands of anyone else, I’d be worried, but I suspect plenty of you will still be worried, if not furious.

So, let’s get to it.

Amory Wars #11There are a lot of great comics coming out this week, as usual, with some titles like Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker, The Tattered Man one-shot from Palmiotti and Gray, The Mighty Thor, the flawless Snyder/JOCK Detective Comics, and a Strange Adventures anthology that features some of Vertigo’s best talent, but listed here below are some of the books I’m most interested in.

The Amory Wars: In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 #11 (Boom! Studios – $3.99): In its penultimate issue, the story inspired by Coheed and Cambria’s second full-length album comes to a head as the final chapter of this epic sci-fi adventure written by Coheed singer Claudio Sanchez and Peter David. The title centers around the growth of a young man into his role as the savior of the universe, and these last few issues will certainly set up the next exciting chapter of this incredible story. I’ve enjoyed every aspect of this series, and my excitement has reached its pinnacle. It’s a bit of a long mini-series, and there was an artist change, but so much happens in this book, and the difference between Burnham and Kuder is minimal, and in my opinion, worked out for the better on The Amory Wars. This is a personal favorite of mine, and I simply can’t wait to see how it all turns out.

DC Comics
$5.99
Release Date: April 27, 2010

Action Comics #900 is quite simply a celebration of everything great about Superman as a character. The issue, throughout most of the stories, is a showcase of Superman’s willingness to help and serve the human race primarily through self-sacrifice. Most of the recent anniversary episodes that we’ve seen, primarily through DC Comics, have been treated as anthologies with three or more short stories, one focusing on the end of a story arc, a couple of “untold tales,” and then one that starts the next story arc in Superman #700 and Wonder Woman #600; either that or a one and done story like Batman #700.

This book, on the other hand, focused more than half of its attention on the wrap-up of Lex Luthor’s Black Ring storyline by Paul Cornell and Pete Woods, and the return of Superman into Action Comics. Unfortunately, it also includes the recent Reign of Doomsday story arc, although in this issue it was a minor distraction, but still paled in comparison to the epic showdown between arch rivals Superman and Lex Luthor.
